Patsy Blakeborough appeared before a misconduct hearing today (10th November 2015), under an allegation of discreditable conduct.
She has been found to have committed Gross Misconduct by the hearing, and was given a final written warning.
She is currently serving a driving ban, once this has completed she will be required to complete and pass an intensive driving course within the Constabulary before she will be permitted to drive marked police vehicles.
PC Blakeborough was convicted in August 2015 of causing death by careless driving on 4th April 2014 of Scott Daniel Gibson.
The finding of guilty for Gross Misconduct and the sanction issued of a Final Written Warning represents how seriously the Constabulary treated the matter.
